Welcome to our Pampered Camper!
We are the Southerlands, a family of five, Justin, Shelly, Jaiden, Ashtyn and our Husky, Akira. We recently moved back to the USA after living abroad in 5 different countries and traveling to nearly 20 over the last 7 years. So needless to say, We LOVE to travel!
It didn't take long for us to get restless after moving stateside and decided we still have much to explore, so we did the most logical thing, we bought a camper.
We've always been extremely spontaneous and absolutely love the flexibility and convenience that the RV lifestyle offers.
Our first month having the camper, we drove over 2500 miles and through 8 states and explored at our own pace.
It was wonderful meeting so many great people at the campgrounds, the RV community is super friendly and helpful so we decided to start Pampered Pioneer and bought two more campers! We're excited to be adding a fourth to our fleet soon, too!
We hope to inspire others to enjoy all that RV camping has to offer and to make your adventure as hassle free and enjoyable as possible :)

Hi Bryan! Thank you so much for your review! It was a pleasure meeting you and your lovely family. You were easy to work with and took excellent care our camper! I'm so happy you all enjoyed your first camping experience and hope to see you again next time! Take care :)
We rented 2 campers from Shelly and we loved them. They were both super comfortable and clean! Shelly was great to work with, very accommodating and quick to respond with any questions:)
Thanks so much, Lee! It was really nice meeting you and your family. I’m so happy you enjoyed your experience with us and our campers. You were also great to work. We look forward to seeing you guys again:)
This was the first time I have ever “camped”. The Pampered Pioneer felt like home. I had a lot of question and Shelley promptly answered them all. The recliner chairs were a godsend due to my husbands back issues. I would definitely recommend!!
Hi Carole! Thank you so much for your kind review. I’m so happy you and your husband enjoyed your camping experience with us! You were such a pleasure to work with and left the camper in excellent condition. We look forward to hosting you again :) Happy New Year!
We had an awesome experience with Shelly and Justin with renting thier RV. They are very pleasant people and they made our first RV experience most enjoyable. We rent from them again in the future!
Thank you I much, Veronica! It was a real pleasure meeting you both and we’re so happy you enjoyed your camping experience! We look forward to seeing you next year :)
The camper was brand new!!! Shelly and her husband were great to work with and they even delivered and set up the camper for a very reasonable charge. They made this experience even more enjoy full. We look forward to renting from them again next year!!!
Hi James, Thank you so much! We are so glad you enjoyed your experience with us and our Pampered Pioneer camper:) It was a pleasure meeting you and your children and we look forward to seeing you next year!
Best customer service one could ask for really. Being a freshman to the RV world I had what must have been an annoying amount of questions but every one was fielded quickly and with genuine care. I was left wanting for nothing. The RV was in perfect shape as well - clean and stocked with the essentials. Do yourself a favor and work with Shelly for your RV enjoyment. You'll be glad you did!
Thank you for the kind words, Aaron! It was such a pleasure meeting you and your beautiful family! You were awesome renters, eager to learn and took great care of our camper. We would be be happy to rent to you again! Shelly
